From cheery sunshine and sandy beaches to exhilarating rocket launches and exotic botanical gardens, Palm Bay and its dynamic economy makes for an excellent place for families, singles and retirees to live, work and play. This city maintains clean, safe and un-crowded streets due to decade long beautification projects.
Palm Bay currently operates and maintains 14 public park sites throughout the city. On one of the sites, the Palm Bay Community Center offers leisure and indoor activities such as dance, aerobics and children's sports. Adjacent to the center is the Turkey Creek Sanctuary, which is 113 acres of natural vegetation. A quaint educational nature center, exercise trail and the original Palm Bay Library are all positioned near the Sanctuary's main entrance. Palm Bay Regional Park, a 200-acre area in the northwest part of town provides loads of family recreation opportunities with its vast expanse of greenery and wooded areas, its lighted soccer fields and softball diamonds.
Art and cultural festivals are scheduled throughout the year and Palm Bay as well as the surrounding areas are home to dozens of galleries and historic displays of artwork. A strong contingent of artists, dancers and musicians contribute to the community's arts, providing entertainment for area residents and visitors alike. From Broadway plays to jazz festivals in the park, this area has something for everyone.
Many who visit Palm Bay on vacation are inclined to pick up and move to the area afterward due to the city's unique blend of residential, recreational and employment opportunities. Combine these features with the close proximity of the Atlantic Ocean and a multitude of regional attractions within an hour's drive and it is no wonder why so many wish to call this city, situated in the heart of Florida's east central coast, home.
